What is Biblical Faith and Do You Have It?

by Dale Partridge

Many Christians define faith as “believing in something they can’t see.” But is that the type of faith that saves a soul from the wrath of God? Is God simply asking us to believe in something we can’t see? Or does the Bible call for a more complex definition of faith?

I believe we can all agree, as a Christian, understanding the definition of saving faith is the most important work of your life; without a correct understanding of faith, you can never be sure you’re genuinely saved. So, in this episode of Real Christianity, Dale Partridge looks to the Scriptures and unpacks the more robust and complete definition of a faith that saves.
